Jeremy Lafrentz of Backstage Entertainment conducted an interview with vocalist Josh Todd and guitarist Keith Nelson of Californian rockers BUCKCHERRY at this year’s Lazerfest on May 13 at the Central Iowa Expo in Boone, Iowa. You can now watch the chat below.
BUCKCHERRY‘s sixth studio album, “Confessions”, will arrive sometime in September. The group is also planning to release a short film in conjunction with the CD, which it hopes will make its way into some small film festivals. The record itself will serve as the soundtrack for the film. Singer Josh Todd, who wrote the screenplay, told an Oklahoma radio station, “It’s based around the seven sins and true events that happened in my life as well, when I was younger.”
Todd, however, shot down the idea of playing the lead role in the film, although he did say that the band will appear somewhere in it.
He added, “I think (the film is) gonna be a real treat for people who love this band and people who are just discovering BUCKCHERRY for the first time.”
As for “Confessions”, Todd said that the new disc is “definitely a heavier, musically, record than we’ve ever had, and more melodic. It’s pretty intense, but everybody’s gonna love it. It’s quintessential BUCKCHERRY at the end of the day.”
